May 11, 2012 --I had been up all night listening to and working on music. Just before dawn a big storm was raging. Some storms have a way of energizing me rather than lulling. As you will hear, I left my H2 Zoom recorder running, jumped off the porch and drove off into the rain.
The voices heard throughout are processed and derived from a field recording of an annoying conversation. Repeated over and over was the phrase: "you know what question I hate?"
I'll let you guess what question that was.
Done using AudioMulch, midi controller, hackintosh, personal field recordings. Drones fashioned from incidental overheard conversation. This is a companion piece to After Dusk
. Which was also fashioned from field recordings made just in front of my home.

Long, deep, and mesmerizing, the way good ambient should be. Your best work so far, I think.
